Prep kids have a fun time at mini ball

IPSWICH East State School children had the time of their lives at a mini ball on Friday to celebrate the Prep students' graduation.

Teacher and organiser of the event Kym Thomas said the children embraced the evening and particularly enjoyed the dancing.

"They really like dancing with their friends and enjoying themselves," she said.

"The students have been really eager to do their practice. We've been practising for the last five or six weeks.

"They are doing the waltz as a formal dance, the hokey pokey and the chicken dance. Then they do a chicken dance with their family.

"They are learning dance. Part of the curriculum is to be able to move and enjoy themselves.

"We are also promoting our community/school spirit."

Ms Thomas said it was the second time the school had held the mini ball and they were hoping to make it a regular event on the school's calendar.
